The double-elimination Camden Adult Coed Softball League playoff tournament has moved along at a fevered pitch and at the conclusion of play on Monday, Aug. 26, six of the 14 teams remained in contention for the top prize.

Elimination games continue through much of the week, while two of the top four seeds — No. 3 Maine Cat and No. 4 Knox County Benchwarmers — remain unscathed in the winner’s bracket.

In games on Thursday, Aug. 22, the No. 4 Benchwarmers knocked off No. 1 Free Press Redwings 8-4, No. 5 Willey Wharf eliminated No. 6 French & Brawn 17-9 and No. 10 Feener Pride knocked out No. 7 Smokin' Rokys 6-3.

In games on Friday, Aug. 23, No. 9 Steel Pro eliminated No. 8 Northeast Concrete 13-10, No. 12 Myrtle Mayhem eliminated No. 11 DX 16-0 and No. 3 Maine Cat defeated No. 2 Yandell Hammerheads 4-0.

In games on Monday, Aug. 26, No.10 Feener Pride ousted No. 5 Willey Wharf 9-5 and No. 9 Steel-Pro eliminated No. 12 Myrtle Mayhem 15-4.

Thus, after Monday's play, No. 1 Free Press Redwings, No. 2 Yandell Construction Hammerheads, No. 3 Maine Cat, No. 4 Knox County Benchwarmers, No. 9 Stee-Pro and No. 10 Fenner Pride remained in the tourney.

Interestingly enough, the top four seeds in the tournament — Free Press Redwings, Yandell Hammerheads, Maine Cat and Knox County Benchwarmers — make up the league’s last seven league champions.

The Hammerheads are the defending champions, while Maine Cat won in 2017 and 2015, the Benchwarmers in 2016 and the Redwings three straight from 2012-14.

Games in the league are Monday through Friday, late-June through late-August, at four fields: Camden Snow Bowl, Lincolnville Central School, Rockport Elementary School and Jaycee Park on Old County Road in Rockland.

The championship game is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 30 at the Camden Snow Bowl, with an “if” game set either Saturday, Aug. 31 or Monday, Sept. 2 (yet to be determined).

All league games begin at 6 p.m.
